1999 Oldsmobile Alero GL 2.4L from North America
It had potential, good riddance Oldsmobile!
Power steering fluid disappears, I have to refill it every year or so.
The AC/heat fan doesn't work on setting 1 and 2 (of 5). I'm obviously not the only one.
Passenger power window mechanism had to be replaced.
Rear defrost stopped working in 2003.
I had my rotors turned at 8,000, replaced at 16,000, turned at 24,000, replaced at 33,000... I now use composite brake pads which seems to extend rotor life to around 30,000 miles.
Both front wheel bearings had to be replaced by 45,000 miles.
I've always liked the look and performance of this car. If I saw my Toyota and Honda friends having the same problems I wouldn't complain.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
